Why eat seaweed?

Sea vegetables have been eaten for centuries by Asian cultures, particularly Japan. The ancient Chinese considered the sea vegetable a delicacy to be given to guests of honour. Outside of Asia, many nations by the water have learned how mineral-rich seaweed is. In fact it contains virtually all the minerals found in the ocean and certainly all that can be found in the blood. Perhaps its major health benefit is as a provider of iodine which supports thyroid function and so helps to regulate our metabolism. Here are some serving ideas:

  • Use nori sheets to make our own vegetarian rolls – fill them with slices of avocado, cucumber and radish.
  • Sprinkle sliced nori or kelp over salad or vegetables.
  • Grind nori or kelp into a powder and use instead of salt.
